"From the preface on I found this book to be an informative and very worthwhile read. . . In particular, the authors have done an excellent job of not only portraying but also linking to common beginnings the breadth of applications to which GIS-T is now being put. . . A strength of the book is its coverage of this past work and the authors' ability to place this work in useful context. . . A pleasing aspect of the book is the way the authors have managed to relate specific topics in the earlier chapters on principles to these same topics within the last four applications chapters. . .Given its coverage, the book should also encourage new insights among those of us already immersed in GIS-T in one arena or another, as well provide as an excellent reference to a great deal of past work. Finally, Oxford University Press has done a good job on the production of the book, including presentation of the many equations and figures distributed throughout the text."-- Journal of Regional ScienceFrom the Publisher:
GIS data and tools are revolutionizing transportation research and decision making, allowing transportation analysts and professionals to understand and solve complex transportation problems that were previously impossible. Here, Miller and Shaw present a comprehensive discussion of fundamental geographic science and the applications of these principles using GIS and other software tools. By providing thorough and accessible discussions of transportation analysis within a GIS environment, this volume fills a critical niche in GIS-T and GIS literature.

Summary: "[T]he value of a book such as this is twofold: it serves to introduce the power of GIS to those involved in the planning and running of transportation systems; and it provides a broad series of highly relevant applications to the GIS audience. . .Overall, this is an excellent book. The rangeand depth of material covered is extremely impressive. . .If you are a GIS researcher interested in transportation applications or if you are a transportation analyst wondering what GIS can do for you, this is the book to buy. . .Miller and Shaw are to be congratulated on producing a wonderfultextbook for a graduate-level course in GIS-T and for providing an excellent demonstration of the utility of GIS in the transportation area. It should be read by many both in GIS and in transportation planning and engineering. --International Journal of Geographical Information Science. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0195123948
